Voice of the Gods, by Trudi Canavan

Voice of the Gods (Age of the Five, #3)Voice of the Gods by Trudi Canavan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After a very slow start up set by the two previous books of the trilogy, this is the final chapter that finally resolve all the knots.
The book is impossible to leave, especially when the final notes of the story are being played.
The characters acquire more and more interesting faces, remaining though consistent with their personality. They grow so much on you that it is hard to think they will cease to exist once the book is over.
I must confess that I would have expected some more details on the epilogue: there are some question marks that remain unsolved (for me) and I would have expected a complete explanation on everything, after being thrown into a complex world without any background.
The way Trudi Canavan writes is always very catchy and trying to keep up the interest of the reader. There are not enormous descriptions of very unimportant details, but enough to paint the surroundings of the scene where the action will take place. It is a story rotating around characters and their actions/thoughts, not around the setting.
I hope that there will be some prequel or sequel that will complete the picture provided by the Age of Five trilogy and will give life, once again, to the great character that Auraya is.
